Friends recommended this burger restaurant, so our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teens) went for dinner. The atmosphere was much nicer than I was anticipating. We went on a Thursday night in the summer-time and we were seated as soon as we walked in. We had excellent service by our waitress, who came over immediately to introduce herself... More

I have been here 3 times, although the food is good the waitstaff is terrible. We were seated promptly, then the waitress came over took the order, brought the food and thats the end. We had to go find her to get the check, she never asked if everything was OK ( I wanted a soda) The owner needs to... More

Stopped in on out way to the outlets. Good beer selection, and the burger is decent but not the best. A creative menu is good, but the portions are a bit lacking. Loud out front in the bar, more quiet in back. I'd give it a 7. Will come back, but not in a rush.

Very very good burgers that are very filling. I could barely finish my burger which included BBQ sauce, onion straws, and bacon. Kinda expensive but worth it. I will be back again and again

They simply have it right.. I am very picky about burgers, I'll glady pay 15bucks for a burger as long as its good but I'm a bit ticked if it's not. Well no worries at Haywire, I've been going there since their opening and ive yet to be disappointed. The owner takes pride in what they do, it's easy to... More

If you love burgers you're going to love Haywire. My wife and I had the signature "Haywire Burger" and it was great, Make sure you're hungry because they are big burgers with big buns. My son had the Rodeo Burger and my daughter had the fish taco. They both gave it 2 thumbs up....so 4 thumbs in total! The owner... More

This is a very popular destination in Westbrook as its usually pretty busy. Don't let that steer you away though. The menu has plenty of options and the prices are average for the bar type food they sell. The beer selection is pretty expansive with many varieties to choose from. Even though they were out of the beer that I... More

Hamburgers are big and delicious. Comes in about 20 different varieties. Shoestring fries are nothing special. Good selection of beers. Very noisey when full which is most evenings and especially on Friday and Saturday.

Don't let the full parking lot fool you (it's kind of small). We've never had a problem getting seated. The burgers are well prepared, good-sized, and very tasty. The fries and onion straws are a perfect accompaniment. It was busy while we were there, but the wait staff work well together, and it didn't take long to get our orders.... More

After having been here a few times, I can say that Haywire has never been bad, but I can recall not being wow'd at times when the burgers for awhile seemed to get a little smaller and the prices creeped up. This most recent time seemed to be good value for money with stout, well-crafted burgers and a broadening and... More
